PF/QF impacted 14,000 Illinois acres in 2008

January 22, 2009 at 08:30 PM

BLOOMINGTON – Illinois’ 45 Pheasants Forever’s (PF) chapters, 17 Quail Forever (QF)  chapters and 10,000 dedicated PF/QF members completed 1,266 habitat projects in 2008, impacting 13,938 acres for the benefit of pheasants, quail, and other wildlife across the state.

In 2008, PF/QF chapters spent $448,053 to complete 351 nesting cover projects that restored 5,042 acres and also improved 2,777 acres of degraded nesting cover; provided 5,897 acres of wildlife food plots; restored five wetlands totaling 63 acres; and planted 58,061 trees and shrubs as parts of wildlife winter cover plantings. Chapters spent an additional $175,655 sponsoring 3,381 Illinois youth at shooting events, conservation days and mentor hunts.

Since 1982, Illinois PF/QF chapters have raised and spent $11.1 million to protect, restore and enhance more than 275,000 acres of wildlife habitat. “The passion and dedication of our Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever volunteers has made us the most successful conservation organization in the state at turning local dollars into local habitat projects,” explains Matt Bradshaw, PF/QF Regional Representative in Northern Illinois, “After 26 years, our members and volunteers continue to put in wildlife habitat one acre at a time.”

PF/QF chapters promote local, state, and federal conservation programs that help landowners protect environmentally sensitive acres for quail and other wildlife. They also employ a unique model of empowering local chapters with 100 percent control of the chapters’ locally-raised funds to complete habitat and youth education projects in the chapters’ own communities.
